Former Chicago PD Supt.: Bring back specialized units
'We need to bring the Targeted Response Unit and the Mobile Strike Force back,' agrees city alderman

CHICAGO — With murders soaring this year in Chicago, former police Supt. Jody Weis said he understands some aldermen's call for a return to the specialized citywide units he put on the streets to fight crime.
Weis said that might not be possible because of a decline in the number of officers on the police department since he left office in early 2011.
